Joke

A joke is something spoken, written, or done with humorous intention. Jokes may have many different forms, e.g., a single word or a gesture (considered in a particular context), a question-answer, or a whole short story. The word "joke" has a number of synonyms, including wisecrack, gag, prank, quip and jest. To achieve their end, jokes may employ irony, sarcasm, word play and other devices. Jokes may have a punch line, i.e. an ending to make it humorous. A practical joke or prank differs from a spoken joke in that the major component of the humour is physical rather than verbal (for example placing salt in the sugar bowl). Jokes are typically for the entertainment of friends and onlookers. The desired response is generally laughter; when this does not happen the joke is said to have "fallen flat" or "bombed". However, jokes have other purposes and functions, common to comedy/humour/satire in general. Jokes have been a part of human culture since at least 1900 BC. According to...

Aadhar card is a Joke imposed upon us by the UPA Govt.
How many identity proofs does a voter need besides a driving licence,the voters card etc. So many illegal migrants have got aadhar cards,but the genuine Indians have been denied the card that was sent by an ordinary post after wasting thousands of crores of public money. The time of govt.school teachers was wasted in collecting data by going door to door,then holding camps in the Govt schools,with the result of the confusions created by the UPA Govt. the names of genuine voters were missing more »

Nm Dm - What is your Humour Quotient (HQ)?
A highly competitive world, Fast paced environment & constant indulgence in a "Rat race" to achieve our so called goals ! This is the world we live in - day in and day out !  Because we are intelligent beings - we rate our successes and choose careers based on our IQ (intelligence quotient) !  In this fervour to fullfill our ambition , many of us have forgotten how to Laugh.  Rather we laugh "Occasionally" or in some cases - " Socially" !  What do you do when something goes terribly wrong ? more »

Women haters, get the hell out...
The curious case of the female It is not easy being female in virtually any society in the world..There are so many battles to be waged, that it becomes a daily struggle to find balance..The first battle that a female fights is within her own circle of intimate people; her family. Everything on the outside appears to be gung ho, but just look at what each female goes through roughly about 20 years into her life span..Her parents want her to be a better person; her boyfriend will probably more »

'Austerity & Sheila Dikshit go hand-in-hand'
Austerity has become a joke in India. There are so many Chief Ministers and ministers who talk of austerity on media channels but don't follow the whole idea of 'being austere'. It is a shame to watch people like Jayalalitha and Mayawati who have made austerity a joke in India.Amongst such jokers, Sheila Dikshit is like a ray of sunshine. Sheila Dikshit is one of the most austere Chief Ministers India has ever witnessed. She does not fly first class and believes in the motto of being fair and more »
